(FreshAsFrankie) Tyrese claimed that his close friends Will and Jada Pinkett Smith lent him $5 million so that he could ‘afloat’ amid his custody case with his ex-wife. The singer/actor made the announcement of the donation on his social media account on Sunday writing, “I’ve been on with lawyers all day but our family and our sister Jada-Pinkett Smith and my brother Will Smith just sent us 5 million to help keep us afloat.”

He went as far as to continue to post allegations that he was still waiting for the check from the couple to clear. However, according to TMZ sources close to Will and Jada vehemently deny giving Tyrese any money. Reportedly, The Smiths are worried that Tyrese is having a mental breakdown while in the midst of the court battle with his ex-wife over the custody of their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.
